I think Smakefinger/Phil had died by the 23rd of June 1987,so the May date is probably right,that is the date i have for the audio of that gig,i dont think it is from the video,but it could be as i havent heard the video yet. Soon though,i hope! I think he dies the day after the 6/6/87 concert in Amsterdam,but i could be wrong.

Subject: Great show!
So happy this is available -- for years I thought the Chicago show from 1986 was the only live Snakefinger video that existed. I hope more like this come out of the woodwork.

(Incidentally, some sources put the actual date of this show as June 23, but the date stamp at the end of the video would seem to be trustworthy.)

In case anyone is interested, here's the set list:

Sophia's Playful Pipes
Yeti: What Are You?
You Don't Blame Me, Do You?
Magic and Ecstasy
Beatnik Party->Shining Faces (I Am Nino)->Move
Artists In Bed
Golden King
There's No Justice In Life
I Gave Myself To You
Picnic In The Jungle
Eva's Warning
The Model
Climbing The Ladder

Guitar, Vocals - Philip Charles "Snakefinger" Lithman
Keyboards, Synthetics, Vocals - Eric Drew Feldman
